Well, you can upload it where you can, and then I can grab it and put
it somewhere else (like buildlogs.centos.org ? ) so that people can
have a look and test it.
What I'd like to see though is also documenting that on
wiki.centos.org. For example, have you used the kernel-4.0.0 rpm
package built and available in the c7-buildroot
(http://armv7.dev.centos.org/repodir/c7-buildroot/kernel/), or have
you used the one from another distro ? etc ..
So if someone has expertise with specific boards, we can all
write/centralize that on the wiki, so that we can then eventually
automate the various .img files creation, for all kind of specific
boards, etc ..

Do you have already have a wiki account ? We can use a generic "entry"
page for arm32 (like the existing
http://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/AltArch/Arm32 page) , but
moving content like plague builder access somewhere else (a sub-page)
and do something like /Raspberry1 , or /Odroid , etc ..)

What do you (all) think ?
